Default Haiti

Is your church, or organization, or neighborhood finding a way to help the Haitians since the huge earthquake? It breaks my heart to think of these people, who have so little to begin with, having to deal with the aftermath of an earthquake. We can always start with prayer, right?

We can pray and can put feet and hands to our prayers. TMCI http://www.themissionarychurchinternational.org has some help program links. We are considering a fundraising through Caring Hands to help some of the TMCI connected programs there. We are also makiong arrangements to send clothes and toys for the children.

One thing of which everyone who wants to help should be aware is to be sure you know how much actually goes for direct help and how to maximize that. For ex when I worked for Red Cross I learned that unless donation check had a notation on them for the specific local area you want to help 50% of the donation automatically goes to national headquarters not the local area.
